Our Sunday breakfast is usually pancakes.
I have a delicious vegan 'buttermilk' pancake recipe that I've included below. Lately I've been adding things to the basic recipe, mostly to add some more nutrition but also to just change it up.
Apples are in season right now....
...and though we haven't been able to squeeze apple picking into our schedule, I did add apples to our pancakes! I shredded two small apples with a cheese grater right into the batter, as well as a half cup of unsweetened applesauce. I also added a heaping teaspoon of cinnamon, a pinch of allspice and nutmeg, and I would have added cloves if I'd had any.
They were amazing!
We like to top our pancakes with natural peanut butter, a touch of pure maple syrup and more applesauce. So yummy! Try it!
Here's the basic pancake recipe I use:
- 2 1/2 cups unbleached white flour
- 1/4 cup cane juice crystals (it's a less-processed sugar)
- 3 teaspoon non-aluminum baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 1/2 cups soymilk (or milk of your choice)
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1/4 cup oil
- Mix together the dry ingredients.
- Mix the lemon juice into the soymilk, then add oil to the milk mixture. (This is where I would add any extra ingredients like apples to the wet ingredients, spices to the dry.)
- Add wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir just until incorporated.
- Cook pancakes on a griddle or skillet as usual.
I found this recipe in the Guidepost, of all places! I thing it's great for waffles too!
I think I'm going to try adding pumpkin next Sunday. What do you like to add to your pancakes? Anybody else have a pancake tradition in your home?
